In an acupuncture treatment, small, thin needles are inserted into the body at specific points with the goal of reducing your pain. Studies have shown that the effects of acupuncture include stimulation of the nerves, changes in connective tissue cells, increased blood flow, and the release of our own pain-relieving chemicals. The result is often a reduction in pain, and improved movement and healing.
At Sublime Health, Dr. Jessica utilizes acupuncture as an adjunct to chiropractic care to have an added benefit to her patients in reducing their pain. She finds it particularly effective for nerve pain, headaches, and tendinopathies, but its benefits are not limited to these conditions.
